Damselflies and green woodpecker

Yesterday, to Gooilust nature reserve.

This video is called Gooilust estate in The Netherlands; taken Saturday 10 May 2008.

Many puffballs.

A robin.

Speckled wood and common blue butterflies.

The sound of a green woodpecker.

A blue-tailed damselfly sitting on a rhododendron.

Two stock doves on leafless branches.

Phase contrast X-ray synchrotron microtomography and the oldest damselflies in amber (Odonata: Zygoptera: Hemiphlebiidae): here.
